Going Down!

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed that the waterlevel dropped today.

No idea what's about to happen but it does explain the disappearance of Chug and another narrowboat on this section of the canal.

Stay tuned for more of this unmissable Huddersfield Narrow CanalCam excitement!

Quiet Again

Sorry, it's been quiet again for a while now, I've been rather busy going places - see Nick's Lifeblog for details.

This weekend was especially damp too - so anyway, here's a couple of pics from the archives, just to whet your appetite for the spring and summer canal photo extravaganza!

OK, maybe not quite an extravaganza, but at least a little bit more exciting than it has been over the winter.

Sorry about the exposure on the squirrel - pesky little blighter saw the camera and made a dash for it!

Ready, set, go!

This was just one of those mad "It probably won't work, but I'll try it like this anyway" photos, that I don't do half as often as I should, given the convenience of a digital camera.

It's nothing special, but it's started me thinking about taking photos from a different perspective.
More on this soon.

Tree Streetmap

Have you ever thought about a mental map of where you live?
It's all pretty geometrical, streets go off at right angles, roads are straight

Then you look at a streetmap programme like Google Maps , and all of a sudden it seems a bit chaotic, and you wonder why people would ever build something so irregular.

I happened to take this picture today looking up the trunk of a small tree, and then realised how much the small branches look just like a streemap.

There's some kind of uncanny connection here, but it's too deep for me to work out, so I'll leave the fractal mathmatics and chaos theories to the genii of the World.

Mountain and Molehill

This was just too good to miss - OK maybe Pots 'n Pans isn't really a mountain, but all the same, you get the idea (I hope)

John Henshaw Again

Saw John Henshaw with his dog in the village again today - am now beginning to suspect that he is local, so may have more regular appearances!

Must pluck up the courage to go up and take a photo!
